Kansas Farriers Association

The Kansas Farrier’s Association will host a two day contest at EquiFest of Kansas this coming year. It will be judged by Phil Fisher, CJF, from Hastings, Nebraska.  It will consist of teams of two, competing in two different classes each day, the two classes consisting of two different types of shoes, chosen by the judge.  They will draw for partners for each class, pairing an experienced farrier with someone that is newer to the trade. Fun along with a learning experience, for these farriers in this timed event contest.  This is also an opportunity for the public to learn about how their horse should be shod.  These guys are always more than willing to talk to the public about questions and concerns! Throughout the rest of the weekend, there will be teams working on artistic or ornamental blacksmithing items. Each team will receive a box of various raw material Friday morning, then throughout the weekend they can work on their projects until Saturday night. The finished pieces will be on display at the Double Bar One / 3B Enterprises booth on Sunday for the general public to vote for the winner and bid on them in a Silent Auction, benefiting the Kansas Farrier’s Disability Fund.  Come see these Farriers in action!  There is no doubt that what they will create will be one of a kind.
